Patent for Sale:Methods for Transfer of Semiconductor Die, Including LEDs
The available technology includes two patents. The first focuses on methods of making a transferable chip, including the use of a radiation-enhanced lift-off layer that is weakened by irradiation through a substrate transparent to that radiation. The chip, while attached to the host substrate, is adhered to a target substrate, irradiated through the host substrate to weaken the radiation enhanced lift-off layer and then separated from the host substrate.
The second patent focuses on methods of transferring semiconductor die from a host substrate to a target substrate using a selectively formed electrostatic charge to temporarily adhere the die to a transfer substrate, transferring the die to a target substrate and releasing the die from the transfer substrate to the target substrate. The die may also be transferred directly to the target substrate, without the use of a transfer substrate.
